The USO BBQ for the Troops Event

All of us at Ray Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram had the pleasure of hosting the USO of Illinois’s BBQ for the Troops Saturday July 13th. We spent the afternoon grilling, listening to music, and hanging out with some great people all for an even greater cause!

In support for local service members and their military families, we held many raffles at the event. Prizes up for grabs were a family pack of 4 tickets to see Ringo Star, Admission for 4 to the Bristol Renaissance Faire, Cubs tickets, Sox tickets, and much more. The Grand prize was brought to us by WIIL for an all-expense paid Cabin Fever Vacation. Congrats to all the winners!

Our live music and entertainment was brought to us by Jim and Justin! They both put on a great show of acoustic songs for everyone to enjoy. The WIIL radio station was also in attendance during our event. What better way to raise money for a great cause then to listen to some music and enjoy some food fresh off the grill.


In doing so, we were able to raise money for the USO of Illinois all thanks to our amazing turn out. We couldn’t have done it without all of you in attendance, so thank you! Together we were able to help the USO keep service members connected to their families, and enhance the quality of life for those who served our great country.
